Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz on Thursday singled out the Defense Ministry as unprepared for an earthquake, saying "it is not prepared for emergency events," Army Radio reported.

According to Steinitz, Israel's defense preparedness, including its ability to recover after earthquakes, is relatively good.

"All the government ministries are secure except for the Defense Ministry. But we are pressuring the Defense ministry to act like the other ministries," Steinitz said.
